I really love this sauce and this is my favorite recipe for a sauce for fish. It is excellent with halibut, but would be good on other types as fish as well. You can bake the halibut any way you like. I prefer to lightly season mine with salt, pepper and paprika and bake in a convection oven. It is important not to overcook fish, so I always use a meat thermometer and cook it until the internal temperature reaches 145 degrees. Convection oven cooking works great for fish.


  • 2 cups loosely packed cilantro leaves
  • 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp minced, peeled, fresh ginger
  • 1 green onion, chopped
  • 1 jalapeno chili pepper, chopped
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp Asian sesame oil
  • 1 tsp soy sauce
  • salt, to taste
  • 2 – 8 oz halibut fillets, cooked

Place all ingredients except halibut in food processor and puree. Serve over cooked halibut.
